2 women, 4-year-old girl shot in Times Square”

A 23-year-old woman from Rhode Island was sightseeing when she was shot in the leg, and a 43-year-old woman form New Jersey was shot in the foot, reports indicate.

Two women and a 4-year-old girl were injured in a shooting Saturday in New York City's Times Square, and police are looking for a possible suspect who was caught on video surveillance.

Shea said during an evening news conference that police have one person of interest they're seeking to question.

According to images captured on CCTV cameras on Times Square, the area was closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic at 7pm, with several dozen police officials deployed on the street. A video posted by the Police Department on Twitter showed a person of interest walking away from the scene.

In addition to Magrinat, a four-year-old and a New Jersey woman were also wounded.

The victims' injuries were not life-threatening, but the little girl did undergo surgery.

News reported the shooting occurred at 5 p.m. ET at 7th Avenue and West 44th Street.

A "very brave" four-year-old girl was shopping for toys when she was shot in New York's Times Square as an argument between a group of men turned violent. No firearms were found, but police said three bullet casings were uncovered at the scene.

Neighbourhood theatres are set to start reopening on 14 September, however, and the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, recently announced a major campaign to revive tourism from June.

The child is among three innocent bystanders to have been injured in the shooting on Saturday afternoon (Sunday morning AEST).

Shea asked, "When is this going to end? How many more kids do we need to be shot before we realize that bad policies have consequences and we need action and we need policies regarding laws that have consequences?"

The second victim is a 23-year-old female tourist from Rhode Island came to visit the Statue of Liberty but it was closed, so she chose to come to Times Square.
